Well the smoking ban in public places has finally reached England. To be honest overall I think it's a good thing, knowing full well I'm probably going to be bombarded by an angrey mob for saying so. But my point with this first post is how certain places are trying to use the smoking ban to try and not stop people smoking by promoting it. Which makes me laugh so much. For example. A pub not far from me obviously has a dedicated "smoking" area where smokers are allowed to smoke outside, but all through the building, on the walls, hanging from the ceiling, on the doors, are directions to this smoking area with the catch line "Dedicated Smoking Area This Way...Don't Miss Out!". Hmmm...I don't know about anyone else but this made me laugh and is more proof of our backward thinking society! I guess you can see the reasoning behind it, but it's still going against the whole idea of the ban. ...Just made me laugh!
